July Wishlist

Summer wishlist from blogger Kimberley of Wardrobe Conversations featurin a hanging planter from Lima Lima, printed silk scarf by Bodil Jane, silver earrings by Holly Mcafee, banana pin by We Are Out Of Office and cookbook from Yasmin Khan
1.) Sunset air-plant holder | Lima Lima
Move over macrame, there's a cooler plant holder in town. To be honest, I don't even understand how air plants work but this would look neat in my home. And hopefully wouldn't require too much effort to take care of.

2.)  GIRLBO$$ scarf | Bodil Jane
Amsterdam-based artist Bodil Jane makes us all want to be chilling in a pink and plant-filled home, chatting all day on the phone and hanging out with a leopard. I think I could pull it off. Not sure about that? What about bedecked in designer in the tropical orange version.

3.) Lemon thyme leaves studs | Holly Mcafee
A departure from my usual Pat Butcher dangleras but I love Holly Mcafee's understated and chic jewellery. The latest verdant collection features delicate and recognisable shapes from nature that ooze luxury. These remind me of the little helicopter pods from sycamore trees that I played with in childhood (nb: these are actually lemon thyme leaves).

4.) A sliced banana pin | We Are Out Of Office
Of course if you slice a banana you want the extra bit to come with it, so that's what We Are Out Of Office has done with this fun little double-pin. As they say, it's "great to wear to a vegetable party". I'm also pretty fond of the Leek Pin For All Occasions.

5.) "Zaitoun: Recipes and Stories from the Palestinian Kitchen" cookbook | Yasmin Khan
Okay, this isn't really homeware but it fits in with the plant theme I've got going this month and I think it'll look great in my kitchen. I'm a huge fan of middle Eastern flavours, so I'm very interested to try a tasty new twist by looking at levantine cooking. This Palestinian cookbook, and Yasmin Khan's debut book "The Saffron Tales" fit the bill and come highly recommended. I'm hungry already!

Summer wishlist from Scottish blogger Helen of Wardrobe Conversations featuring, summer washi tape by illustrator Kate Pugsley, peach print note pad by Annie Dornan Smith, tiger print shirt dress by Hayley Scanlan, Palm Springs printed cushion by Finest Imaginary and Nikki McWilliams and enthusiast tshirt from The Wedding Enthusiast

1.) Washi Tape - The Sea Collection | Kate Pugsley
Yes, I'm a person who gets excited about washi tape - and how could I not when they are this cute! I love Kate Pugsley's whimsical illustration style, especially these little swimming ladies. These tapes are perfect for wrapping summer birthday gifts or for finally putting my holiday snaps in the album I bought in January.

2.) Peaches A5 Desk Pad | Annie Dornan Smith
Looks like I'm going a bit stationery crazy this month, and it's not even back to school time yet. This peachy design is just, well... peachy! This little notebook is great for making lists, which is something I like to do - A LOT.

3.) Tiger Print Zip Up Shirt Dress | Hayley Scanlan
I'm usually more of a leopard print kinda gal but ever since I saw this dress pop up on Instagram I'm coming around to the tiger print look. This shirt dress is giving me so many cool safari vibes and I'm loving it. I need it in my summer wardrobe now, you know before summer's over.

4.) Palm Springs Desert Scene Cushion | Finest Imaginary x Nikki McWilliams Collab
Don't you just love it when two of your fave indie designers come together for an amazing collab? Me too - and that's just what's happened with this Palm Springs cushiony goodness from biscuit queen Nikki McWilliams and laser master Finest Imaginary. Nikki's also got together with a number of other awesome designers to create a whole range of amazingness that's well worth checking out.

5.) Enthusiast T-shirt | The Wedding Enthusiast
Kimberley told me recently that I don't let my enthusiasm come across. Perhaps this tshirt will help as a reminder for me to share my passions rather than keeping them just for me. Plus, the delicious colour combo makes me think of peaches and cream, and that's definitely something I can get excited about!
